The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office says on Wednesday, deputies, investigators and drug task force agents conducted a 12-hour saturation operation on Sand Mountain.

The sheriff's office says all of the arrests were made during traffic stops. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Dade County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, as well as Fyffe, Powell, Ider, and Geraldine Police Departments all assisted with the operation, the sheriff's office says.

During the saturation, officials say DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden and Chief Deputy Brad Gregg parked at the intersection of County Roads 47 and 92, near Antioch. They say a woman was heard screaming, but they were unable to determine where it was coming from.

The sheriff's office says the driver of another vehicle that came through the intersection informed them of a domestic violence incident happening in a vehicle in front of him. The Sheriff and Chief Deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, and Christopher Pope, 46, of Fyffe was arrested for domestic violence.
